EFCC grills another Senior Advocate of Nigeria over N5million bribe

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has grilled another Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Obla over payment of a 5 million naira bribe into the account of a female judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Rita Ofili-ajumogobia.

The EFCC said both Obla and the judge contradicted themselves before the EFCC team of interrogators.

According to findings, the judge had told the EFCC that the 5 million naira was a part payment for a 40 million naira property she sold to Obla in 2015.

Obla however said the cash was meant for buying of building materials (iron rods) for a building he was putting up in Abuja and not for buying of any property.

Investigation by EFCC detectives confirmed that the N5million was paid into the account of a company in which the judge and her children have interest.
